Retin A For Wrinkles
Retin A was developed about twenty-five years ago as a treatment for acne. It was and is an effective treatment and one that has made the teen years more bearable.
Just like everything else, there are knock-offs, “new and improved” versions and “just-as-good-as products. There are, however, real differences in topical Vitamin A products that, you, as an informed consumer, need to be aware of.
Before Retin A was developed, dermatologists used Vitamin A administered orally to treat a variety of skin problems.
There were really no standards of acceptable dosages and there were often problems of overdosing.
When too much Vitamin A is taken orally, the skin will become excessively dry and begin to peel. One property of all Vitamin A products is skin drying.
This property is what makes it such an effective treatment for acne. Oral doses of Vitamin A as well as topical ointments containing Vitamin A are still used to treat:
Precancerous Skin Lesions
Creams, gels, lotions and ointments that contain Vitamin A and are applied topically helps to build collagen fibers in the dermis.
The dermis is the mid layer of the three layers that constitute skin. The exfoliating property of topical Vitamin A products doesnt really have anything to do with the decreasing of wrinkles in the skin.
Retin A has been a real addition to dermatologists arsenal in the treatment of many skin problems including the reduction of wrinkles.
Even though it is effective, however, there are possible side effects of usage. Some possible side effects are: redness, burning, stinging, peeling, exfoliation, and an increased propensity for sunburn.
However, most patients find that these side effects go away after they use the product for a few weeks and that the results are worth the discomfort.
